The General Prosecutor’s Office informs that four former police employees were retained for the daily chasing, for about a week, of two prosecutors from the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office, as they are responsible for investigating the billion-dollar bank fraud.

According to the source, the two prosecutors who reported the illegal actions committed against them and their families filed complaints based on initiated criminal proceedings.

“During the case documentation, the abusive actions are confirmed, and the Prosecutor’s Office for Combating Organized Crime and Special Cases (PCCOCS) has retained the four individuals. They turned out to be former police officers, co-opted for the security service of an important figure in the bank fraud case. After the hearings, the policemen acknowledged the chasing, filming, and phone interception of prosecutors. Moreover, they acted at the sponsor’s indication to identify possible vulnerabilities in the private life of law enforcers, for their further discredit, meant to damage their reputation and prevent them from performing their functional duties,” declared the General Prosecutor’s Office in a press release.

Besides images, video, and audio recordings, the four policemen drew up accurate reports, which they later sent to their sponsor, Ilan Shor.

ZdG found that the critical figure in the billion-dollar bank fraud case for which four former police officers organized the stalking actions of the two prosecutors is Ilan Shor, head of the Shor Party, and one of the most important actors in the fraud case banking.  The man is widely blamed for the notorious theft of $1 billion from Moldovan banks in 2014.

In the meantime, Aureliu Colenco, one of Ilan Șor’s lawyers, rejects the accusations of the Prosecutor’s Office.

At the prosecutors’ request, the four were charged and placed under house arrest for a month.
